Metal Unit Critic Reviews

I think I’ve had my fill of Metal Unit now with just over twenty hours in it. It’s by no means a classic. It’s not something you would run to your friends to recommend. It’s a game you can enjoy quietly by yourself, as you hack-and-slash your way through run after run, laughing off terrible plot moments and feeling satisfied.

Metal Unit focuses on few concepts to offer a good action and platform game. It is very interesting to use different equipment in devastating combinations, and part of the fun is to test and find unique synergies. The title has charming 16-bit looks and the roguelite elements helps bring variety, but the limited diversity of stages and unbalanced elements compromise the experience. In the end, Metal Unit offers uncomplicated fun.

With its anime-trope-filled story, and starkly unbalanced combat and upgrades, Metal Unit is a passable roguelite in a genre where there are far better options.
